Gluten-Free Peanut Butter & Jelly Oat Breakfast Bars Recipe | via scoutandwiles.com

I’ve spent most of my time lately knitting and watching The Great British Bake Off. I haven’t done a ton of baking this year, but I was inspired by the show to make this useful baked good: gluten-free peanut butter and jelly oat breakfast bars.

Recently, I’ve really enjoyed eating Bobo’s Oat Bars for breakfast. They’re gluten-  and dairy-free, and they come in all sorts of inventive flavors.

But… they’re about $3 a piece at Sprouts, and I don’t really want to spend $15 on breakfast bars every week.

Instead, I’ve developed this recipe mimicking one of my favorite flavors of Bobo’s. I hope you enjoy it. Leave your questions in the comments!


Gluten-Free Peanut Butter & Jelly Oat Breakfast Bars

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/2cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup  unsalted peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup jelly or jam
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Equipment

  • baking pan covered with parchment paper ( I used 9×13, but you can use a smaller plan depending on how tall you want your bars to be)
  • measuring spoons and cups
  • large mixing bowl
  • medium mixing bowl
  • wooden spoon

Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In the large mixing bowl, combine the gluten-free oats, gluten-free flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In the medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut oil, peanut butter, jam, sugar, and vanilla.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients from the medium bowl over the dry ingredients in the large bowl. Use a wooden spoon to stir and fold the ingredients until evenly mixed.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan, spreading it out evenly.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the tops of the oatmeal bars are just starting to brown. The bars will have a soft yet dense cakey consistency.
  7. Allow to cool for an hour before slicing into 16 bars.
  8. Store in an airtight container.

I hope you enjoy these gluten-free PB&J oat breakfast bars!
